Black-Owned Restaurants in Chicago

I have seen many lists compiled recently on how to support Black-owned restaurants. So instead of recreating a list that has already been made. I wanted to compile these lists together since these lists have unique perspective and features. I also wanted to highlight vegan/veg-friendly black-owned restaurants as well given that I am a vegetarian blogger.

Chicago Restaurant Week 2020 for Vegans, Vegetarians, and Pescatarians

Restaurant week isn’t always the most vegan/vegetarian friendly, which can be quite frustrating. Plant-based eaters need something to get through the worst part of the winter too! After scouring the menus on the Chicago Restaurant Week website and doing my own research, I have compiled a list of restaurant week menus that are vegan, vegetarian, and pescatarian friendly.

Papa Cenar Brunch Review: Spanish-American Style Eats

Spanish-Mediterranean restaurant, Papa Cenar, is now serving a Spanish-American brunch in addition to their tapas style dinner! It’s a smaller menu with more traditional American options like French toast while still holding onto their Spanish influence with their Spanish omelet (which I like more than American omelets). Brunch is a laid-back affair at Papa Cenar with Velvet Underground casually playing in the background making it really feel like a Sunday morning.

ROOH Chicago Review: Progressive Indian Cuisine at its Finest

ROOH is one of my favorite new restaurants that has opened this past year. You can find extremely unique dishes where so much attention is paid to detail with every bite, every ingredient, every texture. Every dish we tried was perfectly composed and insanely delicious – experiences like these are rare so treat yourself and try this spot because you will not be disappointed!
